John Kavanagh - Conor McGregor Overemotional Over Charlie Ward Win

Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor's coach John Kavanagh appeared The 6 0'clock Show guy on explain Conor McGregor's questionable behavior at Bellator 187 last Friday.

Conor McGregor scaled the fence in celebration of his teammates Charlie Ward and was seen to slap a Bellator official, allowing shoving a Referee but this was taken explained by Kavanagh as an "Overemotional" reaction to Ward's win and further more said Conor wasn't aware the fight wasn't officially ended.

“Charlie is one of Conor’s very close friends and he’s coming off two pretty devastating losses,” said Kavanagh on
The 6 O’clock Show .

“He lost fast and hard in both his UFC fights and was dropped by the UFC and then he fought on Bellator.

“So, when you’re seeing someone that you’re that close with, with two bad defeats and then has a great victory in front of his hometown crowd…he got a bit emotional, jumped in and he didn’t realize that the fight had no actually been called.

“He thought when he knocked the guy down it was over, but it was actually just the end of the round. The fight wasn’t over.

“The referee was trying to tell him that the fight was over. It was pretty obvious it was over, in his defense. He was a little bit over emotional there, but you sort of understand when you know his and Charlie’s relationship over the last number of years.”

Kavanagh believes that his relationship with Ward made him that emotional on the event, forcing him to behave the way he did.

“It’s the personal relationship that the two of them share,” Kavanagh said.

“It’s like soccer players when they score goals and you see them running around and then some will go like this.

“It’s funny because Conor wouldn’t even do that for his own victory. He gets more involved when it’s his teammates', his friends', victories.”
